Born Free Suites by the Sea
Ranked #31 of 39 Hotels in Montauk
Reviewed 27 June 2013

Went for St. Patrick's weekend and had a nice room with seperate living room and small kitchen with table and pull out sofa. The second floor rooms have a deck with great views of the ocean where you can sit and just enjoy the fresh ocean air. The whole place was clean and nicely decorated.

Room Tip: Second floor corner room.

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Born Free motel for our 2 year anniversary. We hadn't been to Montauck before and were just looking to relax in a quiet lazy place and that's what we found when we got to Born Free. The rooms were extremely clean with the cutest decor. We were right across the street from the beach and there was no one in sight to bother us Since it was off season. Thanks Born Free for making our anniversary exactly what we wanted it to be!

We just got back from the Born Free Motel. I found it to be a nice place to stay. It's just across the road from the beach. There was a stove, fridge, microwave a coffee maker and pots and pans. Bring some groceries with you, they are expensive in Montauk. Everything was nice and clean. I don't know what motel the guy that gave the bad review was staying at, but it wasn't this motel!

Room Tip: We had room 14 which was nice. This is a kind of a condo and all of them are differently furnished.

we stayed here before and never experienced such an awful room. the room was the color of pepto bismol, the couch sunk when you sat and the bed was like a cardboard box! The shower water trickled down to the point of me not wanting to wash my hair for fear of not knowing if I could get the shampoo out or not. The windows didn t work.

Each unit in this hotel is owned individually (condos), and our unit was fantastic. It had everything we needed for our short stay, plus games, books, and a kitchen that held the minimal essentials. I would definitely stay again, but I would request our room on the seond floor.

After a harrowing experience at the #4 best-rated hotel on Montauk, my boyfriend and I were just about ready to head home, but we convinced ourselves to venture into Montauk proper and analyze our options there. South Emerson Street runs along the length of the beachfront and is lined on both sides with beachy hotels and motels of all stripes - we took a walk from one end of the road to the other and inquired at the offices of the hotels that looked legit. Born Free admittedly doesn't have the flash of the Sole properties, nor does it have a pool or even a direct waterfront view (it's on the opposite side of the street), but the place has an aesthetic charm all its own. The "motel" (though really it's more of a motel) resembles an old wilderness lodge complete with double-decker porch and a knotty wood exterior. After being quoted in the $200's for a standard room (we would have even taken a double room!) at every prior hotel, we were looking less for amenities and more for a good value and service from a staff that didn't turn its nose up at us. Luckily, in under five minutes, we walked into the Born Free office, asked about a room, got quoted at $155 for the night in a suite (we didn't ask for one, but were happy to take it), and with keys in hand were making our room home.
Not only did Born Free offer the best rate for the night we stayed there, a Friday, but the room we were given there far and away beat any other we saw while on Montauk. For no extra charge, we got a very cozy, well-equipped suite with a living area (flat screen TV, breakfast table, pull-out couch and loveseat), kitchenette (complete with place settings we used that same night for our Chinese takeout), bathroom, and separate bedroom (another flat screen tv, big queen bed, and lots of storage space). There was enough square footage that, after a day of exploring the Montauk downtown, I could comfortably nap in one room while my boyfriend watched a lacrosse game on TV in the next. Because of Born Free's great location right behind the main drag, about three minutes' walk to shopping and restaurants and even less to the beach, we were able to spend most of our daylight shopping and sight-seeing but also get a ton of mileage out of our suite when we needed a break. The next morning, perhaps because of the stress of dealing with our previous accomodations, I felt pretty ill at check-out time, but without batting an eye, the manager kindly allowed us to stay in our room 2.5 hours past the usual check-out of 11 am. Ultimately, not only would I recommend Born Free to any couples or families (or anyone, really) making a trip out to the Montauk area, the motel was a big part of my positive vacation experience - I only wish we could have stayed another night!

Room Tip: The rooms are pretty comparable, but we were told that our suite, Room 8, is generally a favorite of...

Thin walls, noisy, dirty, old, there were rooms full of teenagers that were fighting, yelling and getting drunk and the staff did not doing anything about. Would never stay here again! Had to find another hotel to stay at the last night because I was not able to get any sleep.

Room Tip: there are no good rooms here
